extended family portrait session in lyndhurst | cleveland, ohio lifestyle photographer

These two,  still very in love, can be extra proud of the family they created. I met this wonderful family in their Lyndhurst home a few weekends ago for a extended family photography session. Everyone is a little spread out all over the country, some still live here in Ohio, some in Illinois and some in Michigan. It's been a long time since everyone was TOGETHER. So, I agree that this session was a must! Plus the grandparents will be celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary soon and what a great idea it is to capture some beautiful memories. Everyone looked so good in their coordinating and thought out outfits. The photos look sharp and free of any distractions! I was so impressed with how great the grandmother looks. I'm not going to reveal how old she is, but lets just say she looks very good for her age! Also, if you feel discouraged and think this is too hard to do with your family-don't. This particular session took only 20 minutes and there are plenty of great photographs! 

It was such an honor to do this for all of you!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me as your family photographer for such a special family event!

family of five with three beautiful daughters | cleveland, oh lifestyle portrait photographer

This gorgeous family photography session took place in Pepper Pike near Cleveland in one of my favorite locations. I am so honored to do this for families and every time a friend or co-worker asks me to capture their family as well, I admit it makes me thrilled and a little nervous at the same time. For some reason the pressure to do well is even stronger. But in the back of my mind, I remind myself they would not ask me to photograph them if something in my work didn't speak to them. Photography is very personal, it's a glimpse into my heart and my mind. This is how I see the world around me, this is how I see you. 

I used to work this mom in the hospital. Every time she worked and was the charge nurse, you knew the day would be pretty smooth. She is detail oriented, focused and confident plus a really sweet and kind person. Meeting her three beautiful little girls was a pleasure and I couldn't help but smile to myself by noticing so much happiness between all of them. It was really great to hang out with them for a short while and catch up. Because in a way, it kind of is like hanging out and taking some pictures along the way.

Thank you so much guys for choosing me to capture these wonderful moments of your family. It truly is an honor and pleasure every. single. time!

a baby boy is born in lyndhurst, ohio | cleveland lifestyle newborn photographer

No too long ago I did this families Fresh 48 session and now the lifestyle newborn photography session. I met them in their adorable and cozy Lyndhurst home along with their energetic sweet dogs. This new mom really wanted to get some pictures taken on the front porch since they love to hang out and relax there. The day we had originally scheduled was cold, rainy and very gloomy so we rescheduled for the next day and the weather was so much better! 

We then moved inside the house and captured some beautiful natural moments on the couch in the living room. Grandma was there to help but of course I invited her in to make these photos even more memorable. We then went up to the little boys nursery. I was instantly smitten with his room. These parents put a lot of love and time to make his little corner extra special. I adored the handmade details such as the bookshelf made by dad, the letter "L" for Liam was also made by dad. The furniture was painted a beautiful blue color adding just the right amount of bold contrast! Even the baby mobile was made by one of the uncles with our awesome Cleveland sports team pendants! They did such a great job! 

I love many of these photos! The one with Liam's head visible and one of the dogs next to him sitting calmly and so obediently is a winner for sure! Porch pictures are so sweet and personal to the family. I really like the one dad holding a beer and looking happily at his son. The first few weeks, months with a baby can be overwhelming but these two were so calm and relaxed! 

Thank you both for inviting me to capture these very special moment of your newborn baby boy! It was truly an honor. Can't wait to watch Liam grow!
